    Many hear about overclocking events around the world, mostly being held in exotic locations. AwardFabrik organized such an event in good old Germany, inviting some great overclockers to try their hand at pushing the systems during various contests and competitions. The event lasted for two days and the contestants use up a whopping 1.450 liters of LN2 during the time. Check out the link below for some great images and insight, as to what happens during such an event.

    w1zz was drunk and getting laid ..way to let us down w1zz

    in all honesty though we have some very skilled people here i think if we or some of us got together and registered for one of these events i really think we would do well...damn i wish i had like a tec or cascade or something i would totally destroy something just so tpu could be on the charts someware my dream is a WR you have no idea.

    no score but i remember a hile back he had like his E6600 at 3.5Ghz w1zz is odd though iv talked to him about his rig and he says he dropped out of the score/best hardare race a while ago he told me it just led to a bunch of little kids with a better e-peen and that he would rather have a solid stable system that overclocks mildley and stays cool.

    Still it would be cool to see the MAN in action!

    I know he could throw some scores that would make our jaws drop if he wanted too.

    if there is a 3rd edition next year I will inform you early enough :) I did not expected so many interested people for extreme oc here :slap: would have been great to have TPU in the forum competition and to get to know each other for sure. hopefully we can make it again :toast:
